"Soul Food" Book Launch Blog Tour & Giveaway. A few years ago I took a year long online course called IGNITE... This is where I first met artist and writer Carol Lowell. I was entranced as I watched Carol's idea for a book 'Soul Food' blossom and take shape.
I've worked my socks off to make this as fabulous & fun as I can, I'm really proud how it's come together. So much so, if you don't think you're getting value for money by the end of the first segment, you can have your money back.
I have to impose strict 'signing up to' rules on myself, before I skit off in a giddy rush, happily clicking on any promise of more color and fun and artsy inspiration in my life... I don't expect any different from you.
Over the last 12 days I've shared the individual colors - this is the whole book

This week marks 5 whole years since I first posted here, since Ephemeral Gecko was born. For reals? Yup. This blog is the ongoing project of documenting those in between stages of my art - the ephemeral places - that places buried beneath layers of paint or existing just briefly before being deconstructed and reconstructed. Why gecko? idk...Just because. … Continue reading gecko-versary
Sometimes I take sideways look. A change of perspective is refreshing and replenishing. I've always surrounded myself in color, it lights me up and brings with it so many of my ideas. And I love contrast. I'm someone who thrives on change and novelty. I bounce along with the momentum. So alongside all the bright clashing … Continue reading contrast
